When it comes to antidrug hysteria, it doesn’t get much better/worse than Reefer Madness, the 1936 anti-marijuana film. Easily one of the worst movies you’ll ever see — and not just because it treats marijuana use as a gateway to rape, insanity and manslaughter — the so-bad-it’s-good production became a cult classic in the ’70s thanks to its camp factor and the actors’ remarkable ability to giggle nonsensically for what seems like forever. NORML Washington is screening Reefer Madness followed by a panel discussion on “Marijuana Propaganda, Law Reform and Legal Issues” as a fundraiser’s for the organization’s advocacy work.
